On a blustery Ohio evening in February, where can a wandering soul turn for inspiration? Why... the local IGA, of course!

Having been raised in small towns southeast of Columbus, I was indelibly tattooed with the Independent Grocers' Association brand at an early age. In many of these out-of-the-way communities, having an IGA present was a gift from God. Without this food retailing collective, many would've had no market for edible goods of any kind.

Rideout's in Painesville Township reflects this tradition in a modern context. They have served the eastern side of Lake County for many years.

The store has typically been a place to discover unusual items not normally seen in the northeasatern Ohio market. Most recent of these was a kind of pork rinds I'd never sampled before, Grandpapa's Salt & Vinegar flavor. They were light in texture, flavorful, and curiously satisfying!
